is essential. the data we have already tells us that there's a problem. let's collect more data, and let's put in place some more remedies. your point about the supreme court and the equal protection clause, giving sufficient comfort to those who have been wronged by the police, that's simply not truth. the supreme court case lastbly in the case of wren which i can cite for you, basically allows police officers to make a pretextural stop based on race, ethnicity and national origin. it is the law of the land according to our supreme court. at times our supreme court gets it wrong, which is why which exhort this congress and this senate to step in and to enact a law when we know that there is a problem that has yet not come to the attention of our supreme court. so with all that i thank you. >> thank you. my time is up. i want to thank all of the witnesses. this has been a very, very important and useful hearing, and we have some areas of disagreement which i think we need to explore further, but i want to thank, particularly mr. gale and chief davis, for your excellent work over the years in l

, the employer of the crew. can you break down essentially what this report really does tell us? >> reporter: the report is clear that the initial surprise event, as it's known, was the failure of the speed censor that led the plane to lose its speed measurement. now, pilots are supposed to have trained for that and react in a particular way. and indeed, that's not happened here. when the censor failed, the pilots, realizing something had happened, took a course of action and the way the report describes it, the pilots' inputs were abrupt and excessive. they were a starlet effect. the emotional shock of what had taken place. and then as things got worse, and the reactions became more extreme, it says there was a saturation of the mental resources needed to make sense of the situation. so long story short, something happened, shouldn't have been that serious. the pilot flying reacted in a particular way, and that ultimately doomed the aircraft. >> and this is critical, because i think there was a consideration by french magistrates at one point to investigate these companies for manslaughter.
